1. MapAction is an international NGO, headquartered in the UK. MapAction's vision is to apply the skills of professionals from the rapidly-evolving geo-informatics sector to help to relieve suffering and safeguard livelihoods in humanitarian emergencies. Its operational capacity is founded on a pool of volunteers who maintain readiness to deploy worldwide, together with a small full-time staff providing leadership and operational and administrative support.

Several weeks of torrential rains in north east Kenya have caused severe flooding. At least 21 people have been killed and as many as 700,000 may have been displaced or cut off. The risk from water borne diseases is acute. The refugee camps at Dadaab have been badly affected by rising waters.

MapAction has been requested to provide support to humanitarian agencies working in the region. We are deploying a team of 4 to Kenya on Friday, 1 December.
